Felt like rambling today.

Well I was bad and skipped Tuesdays workout. I did go last night though and had a nice long steady ride on the bike. Tonight will be a warm up walk to the gym and then a series of intervals on the bike. Tomorrow and Saturday will be straight cardio sessions on the bike. And will repeat the intervals on Sunday. So it should be a good series of workouts. Nice to have a plan. Now to just curb the late night binges again. Saddest part was last night I wasn’t even hungry. It was just an overwhelming urge to eat. I will get it under control again.

So, we have that Holiday Hold thing starting at work. I am excited but super nervous. Maybe anxious is a better word. I am anxious about stepping on a scale in front of people. Especially people I work with. Maybe I didn’t think this through. Weigh ins are next week. Ugh, I will do it. But not comfortable with that part of it, but there isn’t much choice. Ugh.

So, anyway, glad this week is almost over. And we are one week closer to a nice long 4 day weekend. Yay. I feel for all the people who work in retail. That 4 day weekend has to stink for them. I refuse to do the black Friday sales for several reasons. One is I think the retailers are taking things too far. I realize it is make it break it time of year for them, but to make employees leave family functions simply to make the added cash the retailer wants is bad in my opinion. Even if you open on Friday, I get that. But have some sense. In a world where businesses are rarely closed to begin with, give your employees a day where they can relax with family before the silly season begins. It will happen. People will still shop. People will show to get the deals. But that season is already so crazy wouldn’t it make for happier employees if they had that day to relax. Ah well who cares right? It’s just employees.

Okay, enough rant against black Friday. Lol. I get why people go shopping then. It’s just not my thing.

    I hear you. My pants are getting tight and I am bound and determined I am not heading that direction again! Hmmm, protein shake in the evening might be worth a try.

    I would be happy to do all my shopping online, and I've only gone to black Friday once, and never again. And I agree about the employees, they need to be treated better. The nights I do my protein shake before bed and then go straight to bed, I've been doing really well on the late night binges. I sure hope it continues, having my pants start to be comfortable again is a huge bonus! Great job on getting the fitness minutes in!!!
